When choosing an area rug, rich color and a good hand that feels nice under foot (barefoot) are essential. When determining the size, I personally prefer that all of the furniture sit entirely on or entirely off the rug —never half on or half off. Spend what you can afford.

The first were installed in August 1666, and they are all now in the Pepys Library at Magdalene College, Cambridge.

I thought that a mix of contemporary furniture and a historic carpet would imply the ascent of man and that we are continuing to evolve. Often I use a carpet to pull in all of the color elements of an interior and its adjoining views and gardens to create a harmonious continuum. I prefer a wool/silk blend for its feel and sheen, especially if people are going to roll around or play on it.

The box-frame coffee table seems to have universal appeal, probably because its open body works just as great in small spaces as it does expansive rooms. West Elm`s high-contrast version comes in two widths and lengths, but no matter the size you choose, we would suggest adding baskets or trays with a stack of books/magazines underneath for more storage.

I love to mix vintage rugs (Orientals right up through Navajos) with custom carpets designed specifically for texture and color. Blending them throughout a period or modern home updates the old and anchors the new.

Think about your interests.Satoh has curated more than a thousand book collections over the last two years, and she always starts the process with a conversation about book content and overall subject themes. For example, Satoh recently created a collection of Jazz Age books for a Prohibition era–themed space at a New York hotel.

I own about 15 of them ranging from 200 year old to a 1940 Bessarabian one. I also try to make sure they have their original colors which is quite hard since so many of them have been restored in an appalling fashion.

Unlike most American designers who start with a rug and build the room up from there I like to take a more European approach in which the rug is just a part of the overall design; I hate it when all of the room‘s colors look correspond to the colors of the rug…that looks a little too studied or "decorated" to me.

What should people expect to spend for a standard 8‘ x 10‘ rug? Only Jesus knows the answer to this. You can spend as much as you would like to! Rag rugs, sisal, even bordered an bound remnants can be very inexpensive—depends on the job, client/and budget!
